UCW Academy of Health Provides Solid Training and Skill Development For New Careers

Victoria, BC (PRWEB) September 6, 2009 -- It's back-to-school season, but this year, it's not exactly business as usual. Post-secondary institutions in the province are anticipating increased enrolment figures, as British Columbians weather the effects of a higher unemployment rate and a tight job market. According to Victoria-based UCW Academy of Health, Vancouver Island students looking for faster training options should consider a career in health care (more at http://health.ucan.ca/news).

"Health care workers are in high demand in British Columbia," says Dr. David Strong, president of UCW Academy of Health. "Recent reports have stated that employment in this sector will continue to grow even through the recession as current employees retire and new jobs are created. We want to supply the highest quality of graduates to meet the needs of both the service providers and the patients."

UCW Academy of Health offers various health care programs such as Community Health Care, Resident Care Attendant, Medical Records Clerk, and Addictions and Community Services. Each program prepares students for life-long careers in the health care field by providing a focused practical education in specific niche areas of the industry. Students also develop a fundamental knowledge of the local health care community.

"Graduates from UCW Academy of Health emerge from their programs having learned the technical and practical aspects of their career field," says Dr. Strong. "However, they also come out with strong interpersonal and problem-solving skills suited for the real world."

UCW Academy of Health is now accepting applications for fall enrollments, including the new Practical Nursing program in Victoria on November 30, 2009. For more information, visit http://health.ucan.ca.
